Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Malcesine, Italy your home away from home

Malcesine is one of the most enchanting and enticing villages on Lake Garda, sitting on its north-eastern shores under the careful watch of magnificent Monte Baldo. It is also without a doubt one of the best-positioned villages in the region, being close to beaches, shops, cafes, restaurants, castles and all of the attractions of the lake itself. Malcesine is also the start point for a cable car ride to Monte Baldo and the home of a great range of Lake Garda apartments and villas.

Things to do in Malcesine, Italy

Lake Garda is famous for being an outdoors-lovers paradise, and Malcesine is the start point for some of the finest walks and hikes in the region. The more energetic should consider taking the cable car, which runs from the centre of the village up 6000ft to magnificent Monte Baldo. The drop-off point is near the peak of this rugged mountain range, meaning there are some excellent hiking and climbing opportunities waiting to be taken advantage of, as well as plenty of scenic photography opportunities.

Even if you do not want to go hiking up it you can still enjoy Monte Baldo, as it can be seen from all around Malcesine. Whether you are enjoying a spot of breakfast in your Malcesine villa, rejuvenating with a strong espresso in one of the village’s cafes, or eating outside a local restaurant on a balmy summers evening, the mountain looms large and provides a unique backdrop.

One of the main sites in Malcesine is the magnificent renaissance castle, which towers over the lake and has a fascinating history that dates back hundreds of years. The whole village has retained its medieval feel, with traditional businesses such as bakeries and pasta shops still doing a healthy trade, and combining well with more modern attractions such as beachside snack bars and popular pizzerias.

                                                                                                  We really enjoyed our time at the house; we were very pleased that we were provided with an extra bed so we could stay there with our three children. The house has a room on each floor; lower bedroom then lounge/kitchen then master bedroom and finally bathroom at the top. The children were downstairs in the lower bedroom which was cooler than the rest of the house (although the curtains were sheer fabric so it got light quite early - kids got used to it after 1 night so wasn't really an issue). The master bedroom was great with a big comfortable bed and lovely views over the houses to the lake. There is a small balcony off the lounge/kitchen where I'd sit with my tea/wine and there is a small courtyard off the lower bedroom with a table that we used for eating outside a couple of times. The kitchen is adequate for a small holiday house. Being next to the castle there were loads of people going past all day but it quietened down later in the evening. The artisan ice cream shop two doors down is superb!!! There is a small stony beach down a winding path below the house which we swam from a couple of times, very convenient. The best beach we found was about a half hour (slow) walk away along the lake shore through the town towards Val di Sogno (there is a car park there too). We did have a hire car and it was a real pain to park, cost us a lot in parking fees and we didn't need it whilst we stayed here. We had a brilliant time and would recommend this house for a fun holiday (the kids enjoyed spying out of the bathroom window at the wedding parties on the castle steps!). Great communication with the owners and from Barbara who met us at the house and was very accommodating when we were later than we had expected. Thank you!

I can honestly say, even though the pictures on this website look fantastic, the real thing is a million times better. I recently got married in Malcesine and rented both apartments for myself and my husband and my family. We stayed in the smaller of the two and my parents stayed in the larger apartment. From the minute we arrived, Annie made us feel so comfortable and nothing was too much of a problem for her. The apartments are incredibly well equipped and the furnishings are of a very high standard. They are impeccably clean and offered plenty of storage, fresh towels and clean linen. The views are simply out of this world and we found the apartments to be in the best location in the town. We were so close to everything and it was lovely hearing the hustle and bustle of the town below us during the day. We will definitely be returning to Malcesine and these apartments will be our first choice for accommodation (if they are available!). I dealt with Laura for the bookings and she guided me through the whole process, which was very reassuring. And the damage deposit came back within a week of returning which was brilliant. Thank you for making our stay so special and for providing such well cared for apartments. Natalie and Sparky
